A woman is recovering after an explosive device apparently thrown into her Anaheim condo earlier this week exploded on her.
Carrissa Brown had just woken up early Tuesday when she heard a noise and saw something that wasn’t right.
“I recognized a 6-to-8-inch piece of dynamite. I had just woken up, so it took me a minute to register, and I was thinking to myself, ‘That wasn’t just there.’ And then I realized that the fuse was in fact lit,” Brown said.
Her family was still sleeping and she was worried that the house “could burn down.”
She ran toward the device, and that’s when it went off.
“Everything blew up on me,” she said.
Brown was injured and hospitalized.
On Friday, she was home recovering, but her thumb and foot were bandaged and her arm was hurt.
Later, she realized there was a hole in her decorative window, and Ring video caught a man in a hoodie walking by the home condo just before the explosion and running away as the explosion happens.
Police believe the explosive device was actually an M-80 firework.
Authorities are treating the man seen in the video as a suspect, and anyone with additional information is asked to call the Anaheim Police Department.
